Happy Birthday, Dr Seuss!

Pin It I don't think I ever remember a time where Dr Seuss wasn't in my life.  I grew up having his stories read to me as a child.  My college professor read 'Oh, The Places You'll Go' to our class when we neared graduation.

We love The Grinch, The Cat in the Hat, One Fish, Two Fish, Thing One and Thing Two ... we love it all!  How lucky are we to have such an … [Read more...]

Late nights …

Here is a passport cover that's in my Etsy store

I don't know about you, but I have had some real late nights and early mornings (with 2 young boys, early mornings are just the way).  I have my 8:30pm to 2am shift in my studio after they go to sleep.  That's the way it's working for me right now in order to fill orders and to stock up on inventory.  It's funny when I tell other mom's (who craft) of older children what my 'shift' is, they always say, "I remember those days".  During my 'shift', I do seem to get lost in my craft and before I know it, it's 1:45am and time to settle down and open my door to the rest of my home.  Then I get in to bed and start thinking of all the things I need to do for my business and for the next day with the … [Read more...]
